What people are saying about New Orleans
We started early, which was nice, because it was hot when we weren't moving. But we we were moving a lot and it kept us cool. We went fast down the waterways and slowed down to take pics and ask questions in some of the tour guides fave spots. We only got stuck once, when the guide took a turn too fast and we veered into the swamp. Was okay though. Another boat quickly got us out and while we waited we got to play with a baby alligator which tour guide had on board in a cooler. The views were magnificent. We saw alligators, egrets, swamp chickens, turtles and lots of flowing spanish moss. Would highly recommend this company and this event to anyone. Wear your ear protection. It got loud without it!
The combo tour is great if you only have one day for excursions but if you want time to enjoy the grounds and take in the history, we recommend separate tours. The swamp boat tour was AMAZING, best investment this trip! We had a great time with the guide, showing us so many beautiful aspects of the swamp and the wildlife, wow!! We have pictures to back up our memories! I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same experience because it’s nature but it definitely should be on everyone’s bucket list.
So, for our anniversary, we scheduled a 10 day trip to the New Orleans area. During the planning stage we came across this tour. "Sounds like fun; let's do it." We had a great time. The scenery was awesome and the guide was even better. He knew this swamp and its residents like the back of his hand. He made it most enjoyable. If you've got two hours, take the journey. If you don't have two hours, find 'em then and take it anyway
Bus tour guide was informative, but the guide at Whitney Plantation (Ali) was phenomenal!!!! He discussed difficult subjects of slavery, shifts of power and greed....this tour was told from the view of the enslaved with very little specific time spent on discussing land owners.....ABSOLUTELY recommend. This is the history we NEVER learned in school.
This was the best swamp/alligator tour I have been on. It wasn't rushed and there weren't too many people on the boat. The captain was hilarious and really knows his stuff. And we got to hold a baby gator that was so cute.
